comment How do you evaluate a chamois (padding in shorts) before buying?
I think most returns get put into their quarterly 'garage sales' not back on the floor.

My recommendation is to buy from a place with an awesome return policy. For instance, REI takes anything back without question.

comment Evaluate hill gradient
I use Strava a lot and agree with what @Kibbee says about the emphasis on comparing to others, but within these 'leader boards' you can select to just show just your rides on each segment to see how you have improved over time. Additionally, you can change your default view settings to default the leader board to All, people you follow, or even a club. If you don't follow anyone, you can set the default view to basically show no one else but your ride time for each segment.

comment Running one wheel with clincher and one with Tubular
I figured you meant same brand/make of tire, not running clincher on a tubular rim, that wouldn't work. What I meant to convey was that matching the brand/make doesn't matter.
